Distance-marking tape

Distance marking tape is vital for providing an instant reminder to staff to maintain a safe distance from equipment and hazard zones, as well as a simple, cost-effective means of partitioning different picking and loading zones. Marking tape neatly adheres to tough surfaces and can be removed swiftly, adding flexibility and versatility as a safety-boosting tool.

Safetywear and high-visibility apparel

Maximising workplace safety extends beyond simply marking out quarantine areas and zoning warehouse points to avoid potential hazards. Ensuring your workforce is clearly visible and shielded from injury by means of suitable apparel whilst on site is essential and, in most cases, a legal requirement. 

From high-visibility vests, to protective ear defenders and safety goggles and frames, there are a number of hardwearing, versatile solutions available to ensure staff wellbeing and maximise efficiency for warehouse staff.

Signage

In a volatile trading landscape, and with the ongoing threat of continued operational difficulties caused by covid restrictions, having clear signage can be a huge step in simplifying access to distinct warehouse areas and maintaining distancing between staff. By making use of signage, quarantine areas can be easily identified, and aisles, lanes and tools can be categorised, helping new staff to quickly get to grips with system layouts and procedures.
